... leading to multiple instances of msimn.exe running if you open/close/reopen OE. I noticed 6 instances of msimn.exe running at once. Googled around, found an MS bulletin from last year where McAfee AV caused this behavior. This led me to suspect ZA, so I turned off all email/AV/spyware/IM options, and removed it from startup and rebooted. Still kept doing it, so I completely uninstalled ZA. Removing ZA allowed OE to work properly again... shut down OE, and msimn.exe shuts down.Reinstalled ZA again, but this time during the initial setup wizard responded "no" to turning on anything related to email/spyware. msimn.exe won't shut down again. So apparently just having ZA on the hard drive screws it up, even if everything is disabled and you prevent it from running on startup.This is on a brand new laptop with factory bloated installation wiped, fresh WinXP SP2 installed.Anyone find a way to fix this behavior? I will, of course, submit ticket to ZL for them to address in next release.
